Sin Cityby Frank Miller
There's a big ugly guy and a dame that smells like angels ought to smell, in a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town. But that room becomes heaven and that dame's the perfect woman. The goddess. Goldie. So when Marv wakes up and someone's killed his goddess, he figures he'll find that someone and return the favor. But it won't be quick and quiet, the way it was with Goldie. It'll be loud and nasty.

Frank Miller brought guts back to graphic fiction. Nowhere is this more evident than here, in his first installment of the SIN CITY series. His protagonists are larger than life, and don't necessarily provoke sympathy...but they're driven with true purpose. Marv is a big ugly palooka, whose life is headed in an inevitable direction, yet up through the last page you hope he finds some measure of redemption. Miller manages to squeeze that out of him in an electrifying conclusion. But don't take my word for it; buy the book.
